I gave this a 'poor' review only because the building is completely covered by wooden scaffolding and you are not able to enter the building. So it is not seeable in the least at present.

I guess it is historical. The outside is nice. The architecture is nice. The inside is also nice. But, nothing out of the ordinary. If you have been to some old churches with a bit of history and money, then this one is nice but...More

Details of this building are incredible. It was under construction but still it was beautiful from outside and inside. This Church has also an upstairs and a downstairs.

In my opinion, this church is rather beautiful from outside and is worth seing. But inside it looks like thousands of other churches all over Russia, so if you`ve seen many, it isn`t worth going inside. Visiting the church is free.

This is a definitely a place to visit, the architecture, the details of the building inside and out are amazing, plus you have a good view of the city!
